6 FALL LIPSTICK FAVES

Hello m’ dears!

We all know one of the biggest fall beauty trends is beautiful new lipstick colors. I’m a lipstick girl, myself, and so I thought I should show you some of MY favorite fall lipstick colors that I rock on the daily, from nudes to deep, dramatic colors! :}

Let’s start out with my all-time favorite nude since the beginning…Be Legendary Lipstick in “Chai” by Smashbox.

When I first tried this lipstick, I was in total, obvious love (I wore it EVERY day for my whole 7th grade year!). The formula is so buttery and stays put for ages, even when eating. Paired with a warm smokey eye or some liner, this color is perfection! I’ve talked about this lippie a few times before, so if you’re looking for a full review, click here!

Next I chose a Clinique Buttershine Lipstick in “Cranberry Cream”!

Rich. Gorgeous. Creamy. This is one of my FAVORITE reds!! It’s so pigmented, and looks great on almost everyone, especially all brown-eyed girls out there. No gross taste. No flaky lips. No gloss needed!

Another beautiful red is “Desire” by Honeybee Gardens, a brand I discovered at Market of Choice.

I wore this shade to homecoming! It’s kind of an warm, toasted auburn, and looks beautiful with brown, black, and purple clothing. The formula is smooth, but you can still feel the beeswax in it when you put it on. It’s thicker, with awesome color payoff, so one swipe is all you need to last all night.

Another deep shade is MAC’s “Rebel”.

This color is soo cool. One layer provides a stain. Thickened up to a certain intensity, it can look as bold and dark as you want! This was one of my first MAC purchases, and it’s one of my favorites out of my lipstick collection. I strongly suggest wearing a lip balm underneath; the satin finish isn’t the most hydrating. One thing I love about this lipstick is as it wears off, it leaves a pretty stain!

ANOTHER MAC lippie is a frost in “New York Apple”.

The color of autumn leaves…positively stunning! Who could resist a berry with gold shimmer in the fall? On the lips, it doesn’t look like unflattering chrome. The shimmer looks good in all the right places!

Last, BUT NOT LEAST, is Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in “Violet Electra”. What a mouthful.

This is a great party lipstick. The shimmer, color, and texture combined are amazing. I know it’s not JUST a fall lipstick, but I can see some people wearing this with their Halloween costume or to any holiday party. On darker skin tones, the color will contrast beautifully and really pop. If you’re looking for a full review, check this out!

Anyway, that’s all, folks! ;D

I’ll be back soon.

Inspired Outfit

Today, because I was very bored, I decided to piece together an “inspired” outfit. An inspired outfit is basically a look that someone or someTHING inspired me to make!

I just watched “My Week With Marilyn.” Marilyn Monroe is such a classic beauty icon, and wore a lot of gorgeous things. (Short review on the movie: The actress played her extremely well! Check it out when you have the chance!:} )

So, first off, I chose a swimsuit, not a dress, for a more beachy look.

Image

It’s the “Magicsuit Solid Gabby One-Piece Swimsuit” from Soma.  It just has that vintage pin-up feel, and reminds me a lot of one that Marilyn wore! Marilyn+Monroe+black+bathing+suit

Next, I picked out some high heels! It’s all about the shoes, ladies!

Who could rock heels with a swimsuit? Marilyn could!Image

I know everything looks very “basic black”, but Marilyn was the epitome of classic. These are the “High Heel Platform Pumps” from Peltz Shoes.

And last, I chose a pair of black, vintage cat-eye sunglasses from RetroCitySunglasses.   Image

Add some red lipstick, and that’s the cherry on top of a fabulous outfit. ❤

(I like to use MAC’s “MAC Red”.)

Hopefully this outfit wasn’t too boring for you guys!

How-To: PERFECT Red Lips

Red lips are a truly timeless, amazingly sexy trend. But now, according to Vogue: “Fuchsia is the new red.” Apparently it’s fresher, younger and more modern. But say WHAAT?

In my opinion, nothing can beat a kick-ass red lipstick.

So here’s what you’ll need to achieve that perfect red pout:

Image

  • A lip conditioner of your choice (Chapstick, salve, ect.)
  • One red lipliner
  • A red lipstick that you adore
  • Optional: A gloss

Okay, so the first step is easy. Just soften up those lips! If you have any dead skin or icky stuff like that, exfoliate first with a wet cloth, toothbrush, or lip scrub.

The next part is a bit trickier. Lining your pucker and filling it in. Gahhhd, this is my least favorite part. I always end up making one edge too thin, the other too thick, or drawing outside my actual lip line. But it’s possible to achieve. Just take your time! I like to soften out the edges of my lips when I draw them, to make my lips look fuller, softer, and more youthful and plump.

So now, fill in your lips with the lipstick of your choice! You can use a brush, or apply it straight from the tube. In my opinion, lip brushes are a bit too fussy.

NOW. You’re sort of done, unless you want to apply gloss. I LOVE gloss on a red lip. It makes your lips look so juicy and seductive! If it comes in a squeezy-tube thingy, you can put a little on your finger and gently spread it on top of the lipstick. You don’t want to disturb any product underneath the gloss!

And you’re done. Congrats :}

MAC Mini-Haul

Aloha my beautifuls!

I recently went to my Macy’s to purchase a couple MAC lipsticks I’d had my eye on for a while. (By a couple, I really mean four.)

I got Viva Glam V, Rebel, MAC Red, and Up The Amp, four beautiful, classic MAC staples. This is going to be what I like to call it, a “bite-sized mini-hall”. It’s going to be short, sweet, and simple; BITE-SIZED. Enjoy!

Up The Amp:

Such a gorgeous lavender-violet, that can look really soft or really powerful and peppy. It’s a refreshing, unique, ladylike color, that can sometimes look more lilac than violet on the lips.

It sort of reminds me of candy, unicorns, cupcakes, flowers or pop-stars, something bright and slightly magical, glamorous and fun!

Viva Glam V: 

This is a buttery, delicious nude that reminds me of something sweet. It makes your lips look plump and healthy, and has enough shimmer to where it isn’t noticeable or unflatteringly frosty.

MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick See the very fine gold glitter? It’s not your average, boring nude, it’s the perfect MLBB (My Lips But Better), and has a nice sheen, giving your pout dimension!

Rebel: 

OHHHHHH MY GOSHNESSS! Can anyone say hello gorgeous?? This is THE PERFECT color for me. It’s an easy to layer, creamy, flattering color that can look rebellious, edgy, and elegant all at once…..it’s perfect! When I apply it, it instantly makes me feel very “va-va-voom”, “bow-chicka-wow-wow”,  and just plain confident! A lipstick like THAT deserves a gold star.

IMG_1275 Depending on your skin tone, it will bring different things out. On my skin, it brought out my golden undertones, and my warm brown eyes. On cooler-toned girls, it would totally make a ethereal, porcelain complexion stand out, and this would also look stunning on a darker complexion.

MAC Red: 

Finally found the perfect, classic red! This is definitely a new must-have for me. It’s a bright, classic red that some describe as “cool” or “bluish”, but it actually looks really beautiful on my warm-nuetral complexion! It is such a classic, iconic color with a stunning formula, that will make you feel just like the glam, Hollywood beauty, Marilyn Monroe.

Anyway, it looks cherry-red in the tube, but you can tone down the color to make it more of a stain if you’d like. This is WAAAY brighter than Russian Red F.I.Y, and I know I will love it forever!

Anyway my darlings, I hope you liked this short-and-sweet “mini-haul”. These are all gorgeous colors that I really reccommend, and if you try them, let me know how you liked them! Anyway, it’s snacky-snack time for me, and I’ll be back soon. Ciao!
